  • Sum Insured Calculator

    Not sure how much it would cost to rebuild the home? Our easy to use calculator can help you estimate the current cost. 


Frequently asked questions

  • How much should I insure my building and rental furnishings for?

    When you get a quote with us, you can choose your own ‘sum insured’, which is an amount based on what it would cost to repair or replace your building and rental furnishings. It also includes the cost of demolishing and clearing, removing items and any associated storage costs.

    If the amount you insure your building and furnishings for (the sum insured) isn’t adequate, you may be out of pocket if there’s an insured event.

    • For your building, our sum insured calculator is a handy starting point and could help you work out the cost of replacing your building in the case of a total loss. The calculator is not suitable for buildings covered by strata.
    • For your rental furnishings, think about how much it would cost to completely repair or replace the things you own, as well as the cost of removing any damaged items and associated storage costs. Rental furnishings are things like carpets, floating floors, curtains, electrical items and whitegoods. See the relevant Product Disclosure Statement for a full list of what's covered.

    The sum insured calculator is a guide only, does not constitute personal advice and won’t take into account individual circumstances or preferences. We recommend getting expert advice to determine an adequate replacement sum insured for your insured property.

  • What’s the difference between a permanent rental and a short stay rental?

    A permanent rental means the property is rented to the same tenant long term (continuously for 12 weeks or more).
    A short stay rental means the property is rented on a short term basis (less than 12 continuous weeks). This could be an Airbnb or holiday house.

    Rental property benefits differ depending on the use. You’re only covered for the use that's listed on your Certificate of Insurance.

  • What if my property use changes?

    You’ll need to call us on 8202 4567 to update your property’s details if the way your property is used changes. You’re only covered for the use that's listed on your Certificate of Insurance.
